John Walling, of Lincoln, says that often during the cherry season, he saw on the streets of Salem, a line of wagons more than four blocks in length, each waiting for its turn to unload at the cannery. Farmers would sometimes get into town at 7 o’clock in the morning and wait until 5 o’clock in the afternoon before they could get a chance to unload. This being the cases, what will happen when the fruit industry has grown still larger, as it inevitably must? There is room for a dozen canneries in Polk County and there is going to be a demand for them before many years have passed. The thing to do now is to get them built and ready to take care of the flood of fruit, which, according to all indications, is going to inundate the Willamette valley within the next three years.
